Legal Answers
8 Questions Answered

Q. If Im poa on my Dad's account, that can't be affected by my bankruptcy? Also can I open a new account with us both on?
A: It's very hard to address your question because I think it is a poor choice for your father to name you as attorney-in-fact under his Durable Power of Attorney when you are in a position that you are considering bankruptcy. Is there no other responsible person that he could name for this position? Think about it. Who would want a person in a dire financial situation to have control over all of their assets? Beyond this, you seem to be contemplating his death. The bankruptcy code makes property received within 180 days of filing your case which you receive by inheritance of on the account of someone's death property of the bankruptcy estate. In other words, you would lose any accounts that you received as a beneficiary on your father's passing within that filing timeframe.
Q. Can a 16 year old Alabama judgement be enforced in South Carolina if they filed and got a ten year extension?
A: There are a lot of moving parts to this question. First, I am not licensed in Alabama or South Carolina, so I cannot give you a definitive answer. However, I am licensed in Missouri and the laws of most States are similar -- you will need to consult local counsel, of course. In Missouri, a Judgment remains enforceable for 10 years, unless The Judgment can be revived by filing a Motion to Revive any time prior to the expiration of the 10 year period. After that, the Judgment is unenforceable. In Missouri, garnishments and executions within the 10 year period also have the effect of reviving the Judgment. A valid judgment from another state can be enforced in Missouri by filing a petition for registration of a "Foreign Judgment" which, once granted, can be used to issue a garnishment or execution from the Missouri Court. If the laws of Alabama and South Carolina are similar, you can predict the result. You need to contact an attorney in your jurisdiction immediately to protect your rights.
Q. Not sure if I need to file in something with the district court or bankruptcy court.
A: I realize that there may be some facts that I don't know, but based upon what you've told me it would seem reasonable to dismiss your Chapter 13. If the "district court" judgment and the QDRO are final, it would appear that your ex-spouse has been paid in full. If, as you say, that was the "only reason" you filed, there is would be no point to continue in your Chapter 13.
